Drunken, By River, Intercepted: A Milwaukee Man's Nightcap in La Crosse
Police Arrest Hobbled Drunk Driver
When police pull over a drunk driver, they'll ask about ailments that keep the driver from performing field sobriety tests. And cops hear some stuff, too. Everything from old football injuries to diabetes. But rarely do they run across guys like Bruce Collins, who they pulled over this week-end after he tried to elude a cop on the streets. He got out of the car with a cast. A broken ankle. No walk and turn test for Collins but he did fail the tests they gave him and blew a .14. His fifth drunk driving arrest.

St. Rose Suffers Thefts
Nuns in La Crosse apparently thinking a little security these days. Comes after several thefts in the last few months at St Rose Convent. Over a thousand dollars disappearing from an office. A laptop as well. After another couple hundred disappeared over the week-end, the nuns finally called the cops. Depending on who's responsible for the thieving, they're not sure if they want to press charges. But they have started locking the office door.
Head Shaving Raises Money
There are 118 bald men and women roaming the campus of UW-L today. Not a fad or trend though. A fund raising event that brought in over $10 thousand this weekend for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, which supports childhood cancer research.
So that's a lot of hair to clean up...........and as UW-L Sophomore Amanda Abrahamson tells us.....it was all swept up for a good cause. Hair will be donated to various organizations to help clean up oil spills and provide hairpieces to children who have lost their hair because of a medical condition.
This is the third year students in UW-L’s Coate Hall have organized the fundraiser, which raised a total of $22 thousand the first two years.
